Two reliable studies (Klimisch 2) were found on toxic effect of
Se-enriched diets (selenium applied as seleno-DL-methionine) on
reptiles. No significant effects were detected on the mortality, growth
and egg production of Lamprophis fuliginosus (brown house snake)
at 23 mg Se/kg food (dry mass; Hopkins et al., 2004) or on mortality and
growth of the lizard Sceloporus occidentalis at 14.7 mg Se/kg
food (dry mass; Hopkins et al., 2005). The information will be used as
supporting information in the secondary poisoning assessment of Se.
Additionally, US EPA (2007) reports data on dietary toxicity for 10
mammal species based on food naturally enriched in Se or amended with
Se, Na2Se, SeS2, Na2SeO3, Na2SeO4,
K2SeO4, Se-methionine or Se-cysteine. The reported
NOECoral values for growth, reproduction and mortality vary between 1
and 300 mg Se/kg food. These studies were not all screened for their
reliability because no values below the critical NOECoral for birds (1
mg Se/kg food) were reported.
